Chalk Paint® BASICS Workshop -Sunday, October 27th, 2013 starting at 10AM

This Workshop is happening on Sunday, October 27, 2013 starting @ 10am.

In this casual hands-on introductory workshop you will not only have FUN! But you will learn the “basics” of using Chalk Paint® Decorative Paints and Waxes by Annie Sloan. This paint is not one dimensional and there is so much functionality in it- let us show you how to take advantage of that and create pieces that will be drop dead gorgeous!

All supplies will be provided. First you pick out a sample pot of Chalk Paint® of your favorite color that you will use when learning how to wet distress. But from the very beginning, you will learn about making a glaze/stain using Annie’s soft, dark wax. Then you will be painting a one and two-color technique- showing you how to add a little dry brushing for effect and creating a wash. A very important finishing step in regards to distressing – sharing our tips & tricks and making sure you can create a professional effect. You will create a wash and learn the fundamentals of how to apply it properly. Lastly- we will focus in on using the wax! Hands on training on how to age and tone your finishes with clear and dark waxes and the proper application process. (applying the wax is often the biggest issue Chalk Paint® users have- what is learned in this workshop will eliminate that from happening to you!) And hands on experimenting with “polishing” the Chalk Paint® using sand paper.

You will leave the workshop with your own sample boards, a sample pot of Chalk Paint® in the color of your choice, and a funky fleur-de-lis …and most importantly – you will leave with the confidence and skills to tackle your own projects at home.

CLASS SIZE: We like to be able to help you one on one- so we have a class maximum of 6 people- with a minimum of 3- exceptions may be made based on my schedule- however, this would not set a precedent.

DURATION: This workshop runs around 3 hours- but has gone longer based on the amount of questions asked- which is very positive. Please try to get here 15 minutes prior to class starting. * This is a casual painting party so bring a light snack or lunch and your favorite beverage to enjoy.

Halloween Mix & Mingle Chalk Paint® Painting Party- Tuesday, October 29th, 2013 starting at 7PM

Mix & Mingle Painting Party- Tuesday, October 29th, 2013 starting at 7PM

In this fun, casual workshop you will create your own hand painted color chart to take home and while doing so, I will discuss the colors, share which ones look stunning paired up and share information about the use of Chalk Paint® and how to get the most of it!

This is a great workshop also if you have been thinking about a custom color. Let’s tackle it together – using the color wheel as a guide and our Paint Mixer Tool.

Any and all questions are encouraged! When I describe this gathering as a “Mix & Mingle” – it is because it is a very social setting. Bring you girlfriends- I will provide the soda, sparkling water and a little wine too. You bring an appetizer to share and do not forget to bring a recipe card, in case others would like to know how you made it. (And do not worry if you cannot bring an appetizer) Salvatore’s Pizzeria is 2 doors down and a small or medium pizza cut into finger food size squares works out great too.

Starting time is 7pm sharp and we will will probably end around 9pm.

COST is $30 and an appetizer to share! I need at least 4 people for this workshop- so invite your mom or girlfriends to come too!

September 13, 2012 (Thursday)- GET YOUR FRENCH ON! French Typography Painting Class

Starting at 11am
COST $80

“GET YOUR FRENCH ON” Workshop ~ French Typography Painting Class

This class is focused on using Chalk Paint™ Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan.

You bring in a painted piece of furniture (painted with Chalk Paint™ Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan) Piece should have a fairly flat surface where detailing will be done. (piece must be approved prior by The Purple Painted Lady) The Purple Painted Lady will supply the tools and materials to create something like the images below (but perhaps on a smaller scale in regards to scope.) The Purple Painted Lady will share her tips & tricks, like how she accommodates for curves on the perimeter of the drawers, which brushes are best, how to optimize the placement and size of decorative image.

Workshop cost is $80 and it covers studio time, materials and instruction.

A large selection of French Designs and Typography provided to choose from- similar in size so maintain balance of project scope among all in the class.. For a small fee- image can be customized. Detailing will be completed in one color and a sample pot of the Chalk Paint™ Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan you selected will be provided as a gift for you to take home.

Again, this class is focused on using Chalk Paint™ Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan.

CLASS SIZE: This class capacity would be for a maximum of 4 people and a minimum of 2- exceptions may be made based on my schedule- however, this would not set a precedent.

DURATION: 4 hours (could go a little longer dependent on your ability) Additional studio time can be purchased for work not completed in the duration of the class- based on the approval & schedule of The Purple Painted Lady.

COST: Pricing for the 4 hour workshop is $80.00 per person- paid in full at time of reservation. Pricing includes all materials- including a sample pot of Chalk Paint™ to take home and instruction to transform your piece.
